Find Your Flow Freehand Drawing Part 2 taught by Jinjer Markley

Virtual Event

February 16, 2021 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm CST

Class meets February 16th, March 2nd and 16th from 11am -12pm CT


Level: Beginner- no experience necessary

Freehand Drawing means drawing from life without any pencil sketches underneath. Blank pages are scary in a delicious way, watching images appear from nothing is thrilling, and the rhythm of observing and making marks is centering. In this class, you will learn to tap into this meditative experience by learning to look, training your hands and drawing simple objects and figures. This class is just right if you are a beginning drawer, or if you want to loosen up your drawing style.

Part Two: Adding Shadows and Shading to Pen Drawings.

This class will focus on adding shading and shadows to freehand drawings. We will quickly review and practice freehand drawing techniques and exercises, and then delve into making sense of shadows. The jumble of tones in an image will resolve into a pattern that makes sense, and you will be able to choose to render shadows in all their complexity or simplify them in a way that still looks “right.”.  We will also learn different ways to draw shadows.

February 16th #1: Shadow Basics + classic pen techniques

March 2nd #2: Curved surfaces  + toned marker

March 16th #3: Complicated Light Sources + ink wash


  • Multimedia sketchbook that can handle wet media. I like a size that is at least 7” by 9”
  • Insoluble ink pens, such as micron.
  • Soluble ink pens, such as Flair pens or any sumi ink pen. I like Kuretake Fude pens
  • Grey brush markers in at least three tones.
  • Waterbrush or paint brush
  • Sumi ink, or black or grey watercolor
  • A lamp you can aim, such as a clip-on lamp or a gooseneck lamp. A flashlight will work in a pinch.
